I need restaurants for 10 days
Hi, we are a family of 4 (dh and 2 sons ages 5 and 8). We love a variety of food and we like doing mainly dinners (maybe 1 breakfast just for the characters). While the atmosphere is certainly important, we also like good food. I am open to anything really, so I am just interested in what the experts would suggest as must doers for a small family with boys! Thanks:dance3:
I would suggest:
'Ohana: delicious food, all you can eat, fun atmosphere for the entire family
Boma: great buffet with very unique offerings (but plenty of plainer items if your kids are pickier), beautiful setting
Via Napoli: good pizza, LOVE the zeppole di ricotta fritters for dessert...YUM!
Teppan Edo: hibachi style Japanese cooking, very well prepared food
Sanaa: great food, unique setting if you eat early enough and get a window seat you can view the animals while eating (it's at Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani).
Crystal Palace: (breakfast) wide variety, great omelet & pancake station that chef prepares before you, love getting an early reservation before park opening. Getting pictures without hoards of people in them is priceless!
I would go to Sci Fi the kids will love the atmosphere, but stick to the burgers onion rings and shakes. Love the burgers, and from what I've heard everything else is either O.K. or not very good.
Our fav character breakfast is Tuskar House. Food is good, hot, fresh. Not only do you get the standard breakfast buffet fare, but you also get some African inspired dishes. Try the corned beef it's to die for, it's not that canned junk either.
Ohauna is another good breakfast it's served family style and you get Lilo and Stitch.
Flame Tree BBQ is a good quick service meal, food is really good. Some of the best quick service on Disney property.
Columbia Harbour House another good quick service meal. Fish and chips, really good.
50's Prime Time Cafe' their fried chicken can't be beat. If you want some comfort food you've found it.
What kid doesn't love Rainforest or T-Rex? Food is good a little pricey, but the atmosphere is worth the money and wait.
Those are some of our favs. Hope it helps.
Wow, the list can be endless, from parks to resorts. What resort are you staying at, sometimes that can help make some decisions? And do you have a car or are you relying on WDW transport?
A few places that come into mind at the park for the boys:
HS - Prime Time and/or Sci-Fi Drive in
EPCOT - Coral Reef
MK - CP (I'd do lunch only if it was my choice)
AK - Tusker House breakfast or lunch (Donald's Safari)
Resorts - Cape May Cafe, Beaches and Cream, ESPN Club, O'Hana
I have a review website with photos if you would like to view some photos and reviews of some of the WDW restaurants, feel free to check it out:
Another recommendation for the Tusker house breakfast and Via Napoli. I would say the Garden Grill would be good for the age of your kids. We thought it was good.
Character Breakfast - Tusker House
AK - Yak & Yeti
Epcot- Biergarten, Via Napoli, Le Chefs, Garden Grill
MK - Liberty Tree Tavern
Ohana, Kona, Cape May, Sanaa & Boma
Check out the menus for all the Disney restaurants on property at allears.net - you may find some that appeal to you and your family more. My suggestion is to try what appeals to you.
Good Luck & Congrats!
There are over 100 sit down restaurants in WDW. You can get most anything you want. I would suggest a starting point would be to review the menus her on the DIS and on allears.net. It will help you get an idea of the menus and also the prices. It is a good way to see what appeals to your family.
We love the international restaurants in WS at Epcot.
We enjoy the Biergarden for a great buffet and entertainment for the kids, Teppan Edo for the delicious food and the show the chefs put on while cooking at your table, Restaurant Marakkesh has delicious food, is a beautiful restaurant and has a band and belly dancer to entertain, Via Napoli for the delicious food and fun atmosphere and the Rose & Crown Restaurant for the food, warm friendly service and an excellent view of Illuminations, Reflections of Earth.
We are going without children but did not realize how hard it would be to pick restaurants. We are getting the Deluxe plan and staying at The Wilderness Lodge. We want to relax and have fun. We want the dining plan but know it will be restrictive on our time. Good puck.
Luck - sorry!
If you have hibachi restaurants where you are from, I wouldn't waste time at Teppen Edo at Disney. We love them, but we have lots in our area.
I took slightly older kids who loved the breakfast at Ohana with Lilo and Stitch.
And, I would agree with the pp who mentioned Garden Grill for Chip and Dale and Mickey!
Have fun choosing. :scratchin
A few of our favorites are Boma (dinner), Cape May, Ohana, and Chef Mickeys (all 3 for both breakfast and dinner).
My musts are Liberty Tree Tavern (love thanksgiving and this takes me there), Jiko is great (love the flatbreads and the filet), Ohana is good for Dinner - wasn't as into breakfast, Be Our Guest seems to have an amazing menu, ill be there in 7 days and cant wait.
Some of our favorites are :
Breakfast - Tuskershouse - great atmosphere & food
CS lunch- Cosmic Rays, Flametree BBQ , Casey Corner, Backlot Express, Fairfaxe , San Angel Cantina , EOS
Dinner- Rainforest Cafe/ T Rex would be perfect for your sons!
50' s Cafe, Crystal Palace, Chef Mickeys, Ohana,
Prime time cafe and definately Boma my favorite restaurant anywhere.
We go for 10 days every spring. Here are ours highlights for the next trip:
Wolfgang Puck Express for lunch arrival day
Boma Dinner arrival day
Crystal Palace Breaskfast
Restaurant Marrakesh dinner
Yak and Yeti dinner
Mama Melrose Fantasmic package
Gardenview Tea Room on rest day for afternoon tea

Be Our Guest dinner

Seems like a ton of food to me but we go every year and my family really likes a sit down dinner every evening and our 17 yo DD likes character breakfasts. Thank goodness for TIW!
